The rant continues:

Why do the old-style humans (OSH) have to resort to cannibalism?  Is there =
evidence to support the idea that the Masters don't need to eat?

(so they don't need to raise chickens, so they don't need chicken medicine =
or chicken feed, so there's no more chickens et al for the OSH to eat)

If the Masters do feed, perhaps it's very rarely (I could probably go a lon=
g way on a cheese sandwich if my body didn't have to fight cancer and heart=
 disease and stuff).  Thus the supply would be very hard to get.  Maybe the=
 food they eat is poisonous to OSH.

If the Masters eat three squares a day of reg'ler ol' stuff, fine.  We know=
 that the OSH can't walk into Kaminski's Deli because :

=09The Masters recognize OSH on sight
=09OSH don't speak the language
=09OSH don't have whatever it is that the Masters use instead of money.

But I don't like the last idea because it begs the question: "Why don't the=
 OSH just hijack the Oscar-Myer truck while en route to Kaminski's"?

Your thoughts please,
